Horizontal stud finder

I saw on an AskToH show, a Horizontal stud finder. I'm looking for a retailer that carries the finder. none of my local retailers carry or even heard of the finder I'm looking for.

Description of Stud finder: 7 -10 inch wide and 2+ inches tall, yellow plastic tool. there is a flat handle in the center of the bar. Along the top third of bar there are 8 to 12 red LED light bulbs in a row. These lights will light up when over a stud ( no more than three at any time ). the finder has a black backing pad as to not scuff the drywall when in use.

I really would like to find this great tool, and add one to my collection.

I have found what I am looking for, Thank you all

Re: Horizontal stud finder

Because horizontal studs are harder to find than vertical studs? An electronic stud finder doesn't care what orientation a stud is inside a wall, it senses wall density. Hold it vertically to find vertical studs, horizontally to find horizontal studs, lay it flat to a ceiling to find ceiling joists. Don't even bother with the magnetic type, they are worthless because your target are the metal fasteners in the stud, rather than the stud itself.

Google "stud finder" and you'll find what you need.

Re: Horizontal stud finder

spruce, i know the one he's talking about. for vertical studs you hold it horizontally and the lights show you each side of the stud. look at the link i attached in the earlier post.
